These Galaxy devices will be updated to Android 8.0 Oreo (updated: September 8)

Not many topics keep Android users on their toes as much as big, feature-rich updates. And with the Android 8.0 Oreo update on the horizon, we are once more bombarded with questions. Will the Galaxy S8 get that update? When can I update my Galaxy S7? How about my Galaxy S6? Here we share what we know. Be smart and bookmark, since we’ll be updating this article whenever new information surfaces.

We’ll get right to the question of which device will be updated, but for now, we can not make any predictions regarding a timeline. So, for example, we can say that the Galaxy S8 will, of course, get the Android 8.0 update, but we do not yet know when. If you’re looking for all the latest news about Samsung’s Galaxy and Android Oreo, scroll down past these lists to find all headlines with related news.

These Galaxys will get Android 8.0 Oreo

These Galaxys may or may not get Android 8.0

  • Galaxy A9 Pro – Android 8.0 Oreo would be the 2nd OS upgrade, but unsure for now
  • Galaxy A8 (2016) – Android 8.0 would be the 2nd OS upgrade, but unsure for now
  • Galaxy J7 (2016) – update track record unclear, already has one major upgrade
  • Galaxy J5 (2016) – update track record unclear, already has one major upgrade
  • Galaxy J3 (2017) – not all previous J3 models received a major OS upgrade
  • Galaxy Tab S2 VE (2016 models) – update track record unclear
  • Galaxy Tab A (2016 models) – update track record unclear
  • Galaxy J7 Prime (OnNxt) – hasn’t yet received Nougat

These Galaxys will not get Android 8.0

So, you ask, how do we get to these lists? Tracking Samsung’s Android updates over a long period of time, it is clear many series and devices always get two major OS upgrades, before continuing with security updates only. However, as indicated above, this rule is not firmly established for most of the Galaxy J series, nor for several other devices.

Over time, we’ll be updating the information above when we receive new information, or when it surfaces elsewhere. We have not included devices that have already stopped receiving major OS upgrades, like the Galaxy S5 or Galaxy Note 4, even if they still receive new security patches regularly. Other devices missing from this list will be added if and when we have tangible information to report.

One last thing we have to point out, is that we are, of course, not Samsung. This list is by no means based on official information and only enumerates our predictions, not Samsung’s official update policy. Should our information be proven wrong, we will update this article, but we are not responsible for your device’s updates. If you think we missed a device from the last two years, let us know in the comments and we will try to add information about that device to our list.

Samsung has lots of money to pay developers and S6 is fast! Even iPhone 5 has got 4 updates from iOs 6 to 10 (https://goo.gl/pT948W)

I’ll move to iPhone, It’s not because I want an upgrade or Oreo, it’s not because I can’t upgrade to Oreo (yes I can through XDA), but because they show no loyalty to their customers

I hope that S6 will get even android 7.1 to bring new performance changes, there is not enough ram memory available on 7.0, it’s a pity not to go to android 8.0 because this phone deserves what components it has

Samsung is abit unfair they must support devices for atleast 3 updates. there are many high end devices which need an update.

The J3 2016 will have Nougat soon, so it may not be that unreasonable to think it will have Oreo eventually, even if Oreo isn’t a big thing for TouchWiz

It seems very bad that the S6 does not receive the latest Android update
There’s something wrong with Samsung
